    Going to post in this the water conditions for my area on a continues basis.

    Made it to 52 degrees here yesterday. ALL streams are chocolate milk and somewhat high

    the water temps are seriously low.

    Main streams a waste of time....headwater might have luck.

    1-3 inches of snow forecasted for the area tomorrow night.

    fished alone

    at arms length and one handed shots are hard to do.
